The Pokemon Company is teaming up with Best Buy, as the retailer will be offering a way for players to catch Gigantamax Eevee and Gigantamax Pikachu in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

Those that stop by the retailer will be able to pick up code cards that can be redeemed for Dynamax Crystals. These will then let you battle – and hopefully catch – a Gigantamax Pikachu and Gigantamax Eevee. You can request a code card at the register without making a purchase.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have just kicked off a new Max Raid Battle event, which is all about Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio from Alola.

Other than that, there aren’t any gimmicks here. It’s just a new opportunity to encounter and catch the starters of the 3DS titles.
